Concrete finishing is important to smoothen the concrete and give your structure a uniform surface. Here's a look at the three important steps for perfect concrete finishing.
Step 1: Screeding - Screeding is done to remove excess concrete from the surface, to keep it
levelled and plain.
Step 2: Floating - Once the surface has been levelled with a screed, floats are used to set the
large aggregates. Concrete floats are generally made out of wood.
Step 3: Trowelling - Once the aggregates are set, a steel trowel is used to smoothen the surface,
giving it a uniform texture.
Avoid sprinkling cement on a wet surface as this may lead to cracks. Remember, you should
begin the process of concrete finishing only after compacting is done.
These were a few tips on giving your concrete the right finish.
